Refuges in the Newcastle area

There has been a significant increase in demand by vulnerable families for the help provoided by the Refuges. Families arrive with very few personal possessions and MU members & friends have tried to help in a practical way by providing such items as underwear, sleepwear and toiletries for the women and their children so they can feel valued and cared for as they settle into their new way of life. 

Fresh Start Backpacks

As prisoners are released from HMP Acklington, Newcastle MU provide them with a back pack containing essential items such as toiletries and underwear and a change of clothes. 

Fishermen's Mission North Shields

This provides support for fishermen and their families. Newcastle Mothers' Union support them by providing such things as hats, wellies and gloves on a regular basis.

 

The People's Kitchen

This is a safe haven for some of the vulnerable people of Newcastle and Newcastle MU support it by donating new warm clothing and trainers.

Streetwise

Newcastle  Mothers’ Union received a request for help from“Streetwise”.They asked if we could support their campaign to help young people who use their services in the centre of Newcastlefor emotional wellbeing and mental health support..  They help young people between the ages of 11 and 25, most of whom live at home, but not all.

Staff at “Streetwise” told us that many young people who visit them are too proud to ask for help from the foodbanks,so they often go without basics.  They have launched a campaign to provide free hats, gloves and sanitary products for young people who access the services.They have also set up a “coffee bar” in the foyer to provide activities and refreshments for the young people who call infor help.

Walking With

Again Newcastle MU members support asylum seekers and refugees through Walking With. They received bags of toiletries, clothes, and toys last year. This year bedding is needed.
